Goddess Bastet

Hi Everyone ;o) Hope you're all well ;o) I finished another painting. Nope, it's not Disco Rules! He will be finished soon ;o) My Goddess Bastet painting was calling to me and I had to finish her first ;o) She took me many days and hours, but it was such a pleasure ;o) I love painting Goddess Bastet in my own way ;o) She is my favorite Goddess to paint ;o)

This is my largest painting I have done of her so far! 9" x 12" and the sides are 1.5" thick.
Enjoy ;o)

"Goddess Bastet"
"Goddess of Cats, the sun and the moon."
Indeed, the people of ancient Egypt turned to Bastet for protection and for blessing, as she was a renowned and beloved Goddess. She was the protectress of women, children, and domestic cats. She was the Goddess of Sunrise, music, dance and pleasure, as well as family, fertility and birth ;o)

Big Hugs, Stacy

  13. I can see why this painting took you many hours. it is outstanding. Love the "ears" and all the hieroglyphics! So many tiny details. Obviously Bastet has inspired you tremendously. From your description, She sounds like a Goddess we can all love and appreciate. Hope you are all enjoying Autumn! Hugs from Robin.

  25. WOW, love clicking and looking at all the amazing detail Stacy, I can tell you must have put hours into it! Goddess of woman AND domestic cats is really interesting, something about a cat that is very feminine, When very young i always thought dogs were all boys and cats all girls, that was why they fought so much, didn't realise you could have males and females in the same species!
